The “Summer of Shots” continues as hosts Mike and Kenneth discuss the origins of the first produce-driven cocktail, the Smash. Find out why this is the ultimate summer cocktail template that can be tailored to fit whatever ingredients you may have on hand. They also discuss the ice component of this drink, and why you may need an ice-crusher for that home bar setup.
Order Mike’s new book Barantined: Recipes, Tips, and Stories To Enjoy At Home; stories from a range of bartenders and sommeliers on how they survived the pandemic and how you can upgrade your home bar setup.
You can also see Mike talk about the new book on July 23rd at Parnassus Books at this event in conversation with author (and James Beard winner) Lisa Donovan.
